This week’s verse was sent in by DKM Kartha. It is by an anonymous medieval Kṛṣṇa bhakta (‘devotee’) poet:
अम्भोधिः स्थलतां स्थलं जलधितां धूलीलवः शैलतां
शैलो मृत्कणतां तृणं कुलिशतां वज्रं तृणक्षीणतां |
वह्निः शीतलतां हिमं दहनतामायाति यस्येच्छया
लीलादुर्ललिताद्भुतव्यसनिने कृष्णाय तस्मै नम: ||
sea into land land into sea,
dust into mountain mountain into dust
straw into thunderbolt thunderbolt into straw
fire into ice ice into fire
at the drop of a hat.
To that master magician of marvels,
do I bow.
